4 Years and Phelan Good!

Since opening their Phelan, California store in 2011, Michael and Darlene McQuown have thrown an anniversary party each year to celebrate and show the community their appreciation. In its fourth year of being open, Michael was unable to host the anniversary party so he decided to change it up a bit by hosting a customer appreciation event a few months later instead.  No harm no foul here, as his community came out in full force to support their favorite local coffee and smoothie shop.

“Summer in our town is actually our slow time due to school being out, so we never know how many people will show up to our summer events,” said Michael. By promoting it on social media and through word of mouth, he was pleasantly surprised. “This actually was a big hit and we are very pleased with the turnout,” he said.

Area Director of Regional Support, Barb Putman, helped out with the event, coming equipped with her famous prize wheel and ready to have some fun. In addition to lots of prize giveaways, they had live music from the band Under Construction, which were a huge hit. But that wasn’t entertainment enough for Michael who also invited Forever Wild Animal Sanctuary. They brought with them an alligator, a hedgehog, and a ferret, keeping everyone on their toes.

Along with gift baskets, coupons, and other fun prizes, two lucky winners received free smoothies for a year! Michael has been doing this giveaway since his first anniversary celebration and the community loves it. The winners each received a Tiki cup that they can fill up for free once a week for a year.

The great turnout and smiling faces made it all worth it and signaled to Michael and Darlene that things could get busy now that the school year is back in session. Their location has become a fixture in the community and this customer appreciation event was a great reminder of what they have accomplished over the past four years. Congrats!

Grand Opening Luau!

Ribbon CuttingOver the weekend, we celebrated the grand opening of our new store in Denver, Colorado in true Hawaiian style. The store, which is in the Lowry community at Hangar 2, is the site of our hands-on franchisee training program and is our first company-owned location.

To celebrate, we threw a luau featuring authentic Polynesian dancers and two hours of free smoothies, coffees, and teas. We had a prize wheel with some amazing giveaway items and thanks to the Photo Love Bus, we had so much fun putting on silly props and taking photos in an original VW Bus.

CollageWe kicked off the event with a ribbon cutting ceremony with Founder Jill Summerhays doing the honors. Once it was all official, we got the party started with some live entertainment. The dancers ranged in ages and put on a fantastic hula show that took us through a journey of the Polynesian Islands. Guests also enjoyed lots of free smoothies and hung out, sipping them in the Colorado sunshine.

We want to send a big Mahalo to everyone who came out to support the new store and our ‘ohana for putting together an amazing day. Maui Wowi looks forward to becoming the Lowry Community’s number one choice for premium Hawaiian coffee and fresh fruit smoothies. Cheers!
